Notice to return defaulter u/s 46 for not filing return

Ajnas (Student) (831 Points)

10 August 2021  
A client received notice under section 46 on 03-08-2021 for the following reason "You have filed an application for cancellation of
registration or you have not filed the returns in GSTR 3B for more
than 6 months and hence your GST Registration was cancelled. You are required to file the Form GSTR 10 returns
under provisions of Section 46 of GST ACT 2017. Being a registered
tax payer you are required to furnish return for the supplies made are
received and to discharge resultant tax liability for the aforesaid
tax period by due date. It has been noticed that you have not filed
the said return till date."
In this case when will end the validity of this notice? 09-08-2021 or 10-08-2021

Return is not filed by due date, Within 5 days from the due date , the Notice u/s 46 in form 3A is issued, requiring him to furnish return with 15 days . so in your case last date ifile your return will be 18/8/21

In case the return is still not furnished within 15days from said notice , the proper officer may proceed to asses the tax liability of said person & issue Order in the Form ASMT 13 under rule 100 & summary for demand in DRC 07 .
In case the defaulter furnishes a valid return within thirty days of the service of
assessment order in FORM GST ASMT-13, the said assessment order shall be
deemed to have been withdrawn in terms of provision of sub-section (2) of section 62
of the CGST Act. However, if the said return remains unfurnished within the statutory
period of 30 days from issuance of order in FORM ASMT-13, then proper officer
may initiate proceedings under section 78 and recovery under section 79 of the CGST

So in Short you have 5+15+30=50 days to furnish your return.
